I love the idea of each day being different.
Campus Supervisor (Current Employee), Bakersfield, CADecember 29, 2013
Pros: free education for anyone willing to complete their program of study.
Cons: i am currently not utilizing my bachelor's degree.
Working at Kern High School District simply means that we never know what to expect. One minute it can be very quiet, and the next minute you can have issues throughout the entire work day. I enjoy working with students on all levels. My position as a Campus Supervisor, deals with high school students, as well as adult school students. The hardest part – more... of the job is watching students let an opportunity pass them by. Instead of completing their classes, and receiving their high school diplomas, many of them will drop out never returning. – less

KHSD is the largest High School District in the county. It requires a dedicated staff of substitutes on a daily basis.
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee), Bakersfield, CAOctober 18, 2013
Pros: student success, sharing my knowledge with others.
Cons: no benefits, no health care, no job security, not my own classroom.
The average day working for this company starts at 6:30am and ends at 3:30pm. I work at assorted different sites within the greater Bakersfield area and Arvin. I am responsible for all classroom management and instructional implementation. I have developed a plethora of classroom management skills and an assortment of instructional abilities. Each assignment – more... requires quick assessment of the management skills needed to work with the students I am given. Every school has a different set of management who are responsible for the substitutes. Along with the variety of management, come a variety of styles that I have to learn to work successfully. Depending on the assignment being either long term or daily, I learn to work with my colleagues as if I am part of the regular staff. The most difficult part of the job is classroom management. Students at this level are a challenge to train. A substitute teacher has the added disadvantage of being their teacher for only a short time. The most enjoyable part of my job is the personal feeling of success when a student finally learns a difficult concept, and the "Oh I get it" light goes off inside their eyes. That is what I hope for every day. – less

Very Big District
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee), Bakersfield, CAOctober 8, 2013
Pros: big - lots of work.
Cons: difficult to get to know job sites if one works a different one every day but there is opportunity.
A very diverse school district that encompasses the biggest county in California; never boring and very professional. Never make friends with students, give out information or put oneself in a position that can eventually come back to haunt you. Do the job and be professional.

Transportation Assistant (Former Employee), Bakersfield, CAAugust 5, 2013
There are various departments to work for and various personalities. Research what your career goals are first and decide if working with teen age children is what you really want. The students can be fun and it's great to have holidays and weekends off.

Fun place to work. I am able to use my skills and interact with educators on a daily basis.
Instructional Assistant (Current Employee), Bakersfield, CaSeptember 26, 2012
Pros: flexible hours, friendly work environment.
Cons: part-time, benefits are expensive.
A typical work day starts with preparing for our accounts. As a special education teacher, I am able to supervise students at different job sites, and teach them the necessary skills to be able to obtain a job after high school. I teach OSHA to the students, explaining what the standards and rules are. In addition, everyday the students and I go over – more... safety to ensure that each student is fully aware of the safety codes and regulations that are set by OSHA and the Kern High School District. – less

Largest High School District in California
High School Teacher (Former Employee), Bakersfield, CAApril 13, 2012
What can I say, it's a high school district. I had one really great school and the vice-principal was awesome. I had another not-so great school and the principal and vice-principal were hard to work with and unfair.
